The Basics Behind Hard Starting and Drivability Diagnostic Services at OK Tire Vancouver

Diesel engines contain many components and small systems. Problems with systems and components can lead to hard starting and the need for a drivability diagnostic. When your diesel engine is hard to start, there are several things worth checking. First is the temperature. Diesel engines rely upon heat for the combustion process to occur. If the engine uses glow plugs, they may need to warm up before they can properly start the engine. Second is oil. The internal components of a diesel engine require a lubricant to perform at their best. Engine oil can prevent harmful friction from occurring and can remove dirt and other damaging debris. If a vehicle has a turbocharger, a dirty or low amount of lubrication may also harm the turbocharger and lead to drivability and hard starting issues. A bad battery, fuel supply, and fuel injectors may also lead to hard starting issues.

Why Should You Have Hard Starting and Drivability Diagnostic Services Performed at OK Tire Vancouver?

If your diesel engine is difficult to start, bring your vehicle in and we’ll be happy to perform a hard starting and drivability diagnostic. If you don’t know what’s making your engine hard to start, we can carefully look over its many parts and systems and help you identify the cause. If you suspect or know the cause, we can verify it for you and help you with your next steps. From faulty glow plugs and dirty oil to broken fuel injectors and a low supply of fuel, our staff is happy to work with you to fix your vehicle’s problems. Is your turbocharger experiencing corrosion? Has your battery gone dead? Allow our service staff to examine the problem, and identify what measures need to be taken in order to correct the issue.
